Significance and Use
The resolution of a copying process is affected by many factors including the copier, supplies, and environmental conditions. The resolution is particularly significant relative to sharpness, edge definition, and the ability to visually distinguish the separation of fine lines.
The standard test target for image resolution may be used in evaluation of the factors mentioned in 4.1.
